.s. space agency nasa say a probe orbiting mercury has found evidence of water ice on the planet. the observations support the hypothesis that ice has existed at mercury's poles for millions of years. the new information comes from the "messenger" probe. it's been orbiting the planets closest to the sun since 2011. nasa scientists say the spacecraft observed excess hydrogen and permanently shadowed craters at mercury's north pole. they say the concentration of hydrogen is consistent with that found in water. the total amount of ice on mercury is estimated at 100 billion tons. scientists say it may have been brought by comets or asteroids that crashed on the planet. the existence of life, however, is considered unlikely because of the planet's thin atmosphere. the prospects of finding ice on mercury received a boost in 1991 after a radio telescope in puerto rico detected bright patches at the planet's poles. >>> japanese researchers have developed a technique using tiny objects that could cause big changes in the field of solar energy. the secret is a technique that weaves round s
